5 out of 5 eggsPretty and quiet

Pros: Pushes a lot of air from what I can tell, I use my face and hands as indicators. Sleeved cables keep the whole build looking clean. I didn't need the fan controller because it's nearly inaudible, to me, over the gentle hum of my heat sink fan. Fan controller did come in handy, though. I used it to lower the fan speed on a Logisy Heat sink I purchased at the same time!

Cons: Initially the rubber mounts seemed cool, but they proved to be a real pain when I began to mount to my case. After breaking the tip of the last mount I finally realized you need to wiggle the tip to put it through the hole. It would have been helpful if there was a little note mentioning that, but it all worked out, so it's a non issue.

Other Thoughts: I thought it was DOA at first because it wouldn't spin. Turns out the blades weren't secured fully onto the spinny thingy. I pushed the the blades down to feel a smooth *click* and tried it again, everything worked great!

5 out of 5 eggsCase fan with possibly the best CFM/dB(A) ratio

Pros: I have 2 other 92mm case fans that I looked over for great air flow and minimal noise, which are Thermaltake AF0035 and a Noctua NF-B9-1600. The Thermaltake has a great air flow at max speed but it is loud while the latter has pretty decent air flow with dead silence. This Gelid fan is pretty much a mix and match of those 2 other fans and it's very quiet at max speed.

Cons: The silicons that come with the fan are incredibly difficult to use that I had to use the ones that came with my Thermaltake fan.

Other Thoughts: I'm that kind of a guy who's very susceptible to get easily annoyed by tiny randomly generated noises so I'm not one of those reviewers with multiple case fans with a loud set up to go "This is a quiet unit (compared to my other baby turbine engines)" along the comments so yes, this fan really is quiet.

Alternatively, you can go with the 92mm Noctua fan for slightly less air flow but do avoid that Thermaltake fan that I mentioned if you are looking for a bit of an extra punch by sacrificing the silence from the desktop as the fan was loud enough to block out my HDD's annoying hum.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet and Cool

Pros: Strong Pros: Very quiet. Little to no vibration. High cfm to dBA ratio.

Moderate Pro: more economical than other ultra-quiet high-flow fans.

Cons: Moderate Con: Moderately high price, but worth it for the cfm to dB ratio.

Other Thoughts: Even using the solid mounts, instead of the rubber grommet connectors, this fan is very quiet.

I am using this as a replacement fan for my Thermaltake RX K8 CPU cooler which was rated at 38.7 cfm and 18 dBA (probably at minimum speed). This fan is rated at 39.8 cfm and 22.5 dBA. I'm almost positive that Thermaltake publishes the dBA reading of the lowest fan speed and then publishes the maximum fan speed; this is somewhat misleading. However, in the case of this Gelid fan, I can honestly say that it is keeping my CPU just as cool as the Thermaltake fan and with much less noise. I wouldn't be surprised if the Gelid fan is 22.5 dBA @ 39.8 cfm.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Fan, good airflow, cheap price

Pros: - Cheap, good airflow, Quiet

Cons: - None

Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace my dying stock 92mm fan with ball-bearing/noise issues in my Thermaltake Tsunami case. After installing my new fan, I had an immediate reduction in noise and felt much greater airflow blowing inside my computer. Whenever I open my computer now, there's a cool gust of wind that puffs out as opposed to the toaster oven effect which was my old fan, which tells me this thing is doing it's job. This fan gets 5 stars from me.

5 out of 5 eggs92mm Gelid fan

Pros: Quiet. Long sleeved power cord. Great flow rate. High static pressure. Easy to take apart and clean.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace the 92mm fan on my Masscool 8WA741 CPU cooler. It dropped temps about 5C in idle and on full load. It is so quiet running at ~2300 rpm, I can't hear it over my GPU cooler. My case sits on the top of my desk about 18 inches away from me. Excellent fan. Buy one.

5 out of 5 eggsGood product

Pros: These definitely made a massive noise change over my older fans! (Stock case fans) They also push a bit more air and look very nice and sleek. The noiseless rubber mounts were a nice add.

Cons: I know its a dummy installation, but it comes with no instructions which may be bad for beginners. The rubber mounts were also pretty tough to get into place and you have to make sure your getting each side on the right side (no instructions).

Also as stated by the other reviewer, there is no led but thats alright, I don't like LEDs all too much (more of a non-personal con).

Other Thoughts: If you do go about buying these fans and have a bit of a hard time putting on the rubber mounts, take a very tiny bit amount of soap and lube the side of the rubber mount thats giving you problems, then use a small towel to pull them into place. The soap dries up pretty quickly later.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat fan if you like glow-in-the-dark stuff.

Pros: Replaced the stock fan in my Dell Inspiron 530 with one of these. It looks a lot sleeker and moves a lot more air, AND most importantly its quieter. A win on all fronts.

For some reason after looking at the pictures, I was deceived into thinking this fan had an LED, but rest assured, it does not. Not to disappoint, though, because the clear blue fins pick up on and reflect any other light inside your case and spin with a nice little glow. Blue is soothing.

Rubber noiseless mounts are always a plus, although I always feel like I'm ripping them during installation, but a plus nonetheless.

Cons: I don't like the included fan controller. It is bulky and the knob is cheap plastic. There is no good place to put it. A PCI slot controller would be nicer... so would a 3 way switch. This controller is just no good, but since I'm not using it (plugged straight into SYS_FAN1) I will not reduce the overall score.
